    GOOD EVENING

    Welcome to our live blog of Ireland vs Wales in the Autumn Nations Cup.

    Both sides are looking to put a disappointing end to their Six Nations campaigns behind them, and win the inaugural game of the Autumn Nations Cup.

    Wales finished the 2020 Six Nations in fifth place, winning just one game from five, while Ireland missed out on the chance to be Six Nations Champions after defeat in Paris on the final day of the tournament.

    An Ireland victory by six points or more would have seen them crowned Champions in Paris two weeks ago, but they went down 35-27 at the Stade de France.

    Despite losing 14-10 to Scotland in their final Six Nations game, Wales have named the same team tonight that was originally named for that fixture.

    The Autumn Nations Cup is a new tournament that gets underway this evening in Dublin, compromising of eight teams, split in to two pools of four.

    England and Georgia are the other teams in Pool A with Ireland and Wales, while Italy, France, Scotland and Fiji make up Pool B.

    After playing each nation in their pool, the teams that finish first, second, third and fourth will then play against each other in December to decide the tournament winner.

    Kick off in Dublin tonight is at 7pm, and the team news will follow shortly.
